  1. I went to Brackets on Saturday Night, a like it a lot. Although I did not try the higher priced entrees, I felt the food was quite good (especially for a new restaurant). We split the Brackets Burger (topped w/avacado, roasted red pepper, pancetta and an onion ring), and the special chicken, artichoke and sopresatta pizza. The burger was wonderful and the pizza, while not quite up to Il Cane Rosso/Campagnia standards, was quite good. Also, we shared a bucket of 5 Pilsner Urquell’s which, at $15/bucket, were a steal. I would definitely reccomend this place.
